From: EatingWell.com, July 2018

Many gazpacho recipes are thickened with bread, but this one uses just vegetables, making it a gluten-free refresher for a hot summer day. The key to any flavorful gazpacho is giving it time to rest. The flavors meld and become cohesive when the soup is allowed to sit a bit before serving.

This gazpacho was full of flavor! It's not for those who are unwilling to try cold soups or those who are afraid of teh strong flavors of vinegar and garlic. It's refreshing and cooling on a warm summer day, and it great for lunch!
